Tish was published in 1917. It is a laugh out loud story of three middle aged, turn of the century ladies who have some fun adventures. Tish is way ahead of her time and feels that she can do anything 'especially with the help of a little blackberry cordial'. If you enjoy a clean, fun read, this book is highly recommended.

I read this book 60 years ago and it still made me laugh today. This version is poorly edited or unedited. Tish and her two companion middle-agers are so much fun and their repartee is hilarious at times. The obligatory romance in each story is dated but the three ladies are priceless.
